Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

Cream Cheese Chicken Chili // The cream cheese in this Chili recipe makes it so creamy and delicious! | Tried and TastyThings have been crazy busy in my life to say the least. For times like that I look to my crock pot for a little help. All I do is prep the night before or the morning of, throw in my ingredients, and dream all night or all day about the wonderful meal that required zero work! This is an awesome chili variation. I’m finding more and more that chili is so versatile. Like most of my crock pot recipes, this one became a surefire hit with the hubster who has since requested it once a month!

  2. I didn't have a can of Rotel on hand so I used a can of diced tomatoes and it was the perfect substitution.

    Oh my goodness- this looks divine!!! I LOVE slow cooker recipes . . . I might have to add this to my menu this week! 🙂 Thank you for the delicious recipe!

  2. Crystal

    I made this tonight. It was so good and the easiest crock pot meal ever. Since it didn’t have very many ingredients I gave this uncooked meal to some of my friends for Christmas. It was a hit!

  3. Lisa

    Absolutely wonderful and so easy to make you don’t even have to remember to take the chicken out of the freezer!!! I make this at least twice a month and i have to double the recipe.

    I have a new electric pressure cooker and decided to give this a whirl. It was done in 15 minutes. Easiet recipe ever! And amazingly delicious!! Definitely a new favorite!

      Hello! I’m sure it would work just fine – I can’t see why it would make too big of a difference. Try it out and let me know how it works!

  5. Lorraine

    Love, love this recipe. Make it for all functions and friends in need of a meal. Always use low fat cream cheese and can’t tell the difference.

  6. Michelle

    I have thawed chicken breasts….can I just adjust the cook time for UN-frozen chicken? Do you have a recommended time?

    1. Yvonne

      I’ve never frozen it so I’m not 100% sure, you could try a little bit of it and see how it reheats before freezing a whole batch!

    I tried this tonight and the grand kids loved it suggested I put it on Fajita wraps with the sour cream…may just try that it is nice because I happened to have everything needed in the kitchen and did not have to purchase anything now I will make sure all ingredients are in the the kitchen for the days Whats for dinner and this is great since the chicken can be frozen. Next time I will have to double …Thanks for this recipe
